VIP BBQ – Liverpool Legend Phil Thompson6 Dec 2011
Representing his beloved Liverpool FC as club ambassador for their Asian tour, Phil Thompson: Player, manager,Liverpool legend and quite possibly one of the most engaging storytellers we’ve been fortunate enough to meet.
Phil joined Football Focus and a legion of reds fans in a fantastic afternoon of BBQ and free-flow drinks where supporters were given the opportunity to meet Phil, get autographs and ask questions. Most memorably however, we were adorned with unique tales showing what it means to actually be part of one of the most celebrated football clubs in the world. The highs and the lows, what King Kenny would say in the dressing room, how Robbie Fowler used to prepare for a game etc. These are the kinds of moments that leave fans hanging on every word, and when Phil speaks, all you can do is listen.
The BBQ was a successful event, with Phil Thompson, synonymous with Liverpool’s success and heritage, able to engage with the supporters who share the same passion for the club that he does. It was a hugely enjoyable afternoon for all of us and gave a refreshing insight into the behind-the-scenes details of the Premier League that we’ve always wondered about but never known.
